Kurt Angle opened up the show to the hyped crowd, reminding everyone that tonight is the Superstar Shakeup, a 2-night special where wrestlers from Raw, Smackdown, and NXT are traded between brands to much surprise by us. Immediately, Jinder Mahal walks out as RAW’s first acquisition of the night. To kick off his first night on the red brand, Jeff Hardy appeared to take on the Modern Day Maharaja for the United States Championship.
We have a new United States Champion in Jeff Hardy! We’ll see how he fares as champ when Jinder Mahal invokes his rematch clause at Backlash.
The Riott Squad debuted on RAW in an explosive way, attacking both Bayley and Sasha Banks.
On Miz TV, the guests for this week are the newest RAW acquisitions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, who were both free agents after being fired from Smackdown LIVE. Kurt Angle comes out and Sami tosses some patronizing words at the General Manager, shaming him for Stephanie McMahon doing his job and making the decision instead. The Miz’s firey jest was quickly put out when Angle announced that he’s sending Miz to Smackdown.
Raw now has a crazy cat lady! Natalya has been traded from Smackdown LIVE.
Dolph Ziggler is now a member of Monday Night Raw. He nearly joined Titus Worldwide, but declined in favor of his own alliance. Out of nowhere, Drew McIntyre from NXT clobbers all three members of Titus Worldwide. The exclamation point on the beatdown was a combination Zig-Zag/Claymore Kick onto Titus O’Neal.
Baron Corbin is now a Raw superstar. Breezango as well, as they make their Raw debut against The Bar.
Monday nights have become Glorious! Bobby Roode has been drafted to RAW.
